I have confirmed this with two separate projects.

Call to System.Net.NetworkInformation.GetAllNetworkInterfaces() works fine under normal conditions. Turn on Personal Hotspot and the call fails 

System.ArgumentException: length

I can confirm this bug. Just upgraded MonoTouch to 5.4.0 and it's very annoying.
